The car stopped with tho usual lurch,
and tho conductor assisted to the plat
form a tall lady, evidently young, but
whose face was hidden by the heavy
folds of a long crape veil. Her gown
and gloves were of the same somber hue
as the veil. Sho was followed by a little
girl, also dressed in black. As the car
started on ita way down town the lady
and the little girl took seats in the cor
ner. Neither spoke for Borne time, and
then the little girl looked np, and in a
roice that was heard above the rattle of
the car exclaimed:
"Yes, my dear."
"I want to see papa."
"Ilnsh, dearest," and a black gloved
hand reached over and took one of the
tiny hands of the child. Then there was
silence for a minute. Suddenly the child
ish voice was heard again:
"But 1 do want to see papa,
won't you let me see him?"
"Don't, darling; please don't," came
the answer, as the bead of the little girl
was tenderly drawn over until it rested
against the folds of the crape veil.
"But why won't you let me see papa?"
persisted the child.
There was no answer, but the shroud
ed head of the black figure in the corner
waa bent low and the black gloved hand
was reaching for Bomething evidently
bidden in the folds of the black gown.
"Yes, dear," answered a tremulona
"Can I see papa tonight?"
Almost fiercely the little figure waa
drawn to that of the larger one, and a
whisper more a bod was heard to say:
"Oh, Elsie, dear, hush. Don't you
know that papa lies way off there on the
Litchfield hills! You can't seem him
tonight, darling, and may God help you
and help me."
And the car rattled on; but the big,
portly man in the opposite corner turned
about in his seat and looked steadily out
of the window for several minutes.

Doing One'i Fart.
A witty and miserly gentleman who
accepted many invitations without re
turning them, but who contributed
greatly to the general entertainment by
his bright conversation, once defended
himself by saying:
"My friends give the dinners, but I
furnish the salt."
II he was parsimonious in the matte?
of dinners he was generous with his best
thoughts, his most cheerful and enter
taining stories, fulfilling one social duty
although he neglected another.
This social duty of giving in conver
sation one's brightest and best, of mak
ing an effort to be interesting, and being
cheerful when it is not possible to bs
brilliant, is often selfishly neglected.
Life is an affair of mutual obliga
tions. We have to thank most of our
friends for kindness and patience and
encouragement, and we owe it to them
to remember that often, unknown to us,
they are in ned of being made to forget
some trouble or grief, or are in need of
some fresh, cheering thought, and when
we give them our conversational best
we are doing what we can to supply that
Many persons who would not think of
going anywhere with a bandaged head
or a disagreeable cold or a disturbing
cough, carry a gloomy face, a fit of the
blues or an ill tempered mood on a visit
or to a party, without thinking that
there ia no excuse at all for their being
a skeleton at the feast. They disturb
their hosts and hostesses by making it
evident that they are not having a good
time, and they have a depressing effect
on every one else. Youth's Companion.
